RPS At E3: Sweeping Up

There are a few bits and pieces from E3 that I've yet to write about. I've also thoughts on the remarkable-looking Love to come, and details on a few of Paradox's forthcoming games via Mr Stone. But here's a few that were left over. Below there's a few brief comments on Alpha Protocol, Alien Vs Predator and Rogue Warrior.

RPS At E3: Global Agenda

Global Agenda requires you to change your mind. Despite being built in the Unreal 3 engine, and despite looking really rather fine, it presents itself as an MMO. It's a third person view of your character, with a tray of icons along the bottom of the screen, health and energy top left. But try and play it like an MMO and you're going to end…

RPS At E3: Dragon Age – Origins

There were surprisingly few disappointments at E3 this year. Most trips behind a closed door revealed something new and exciting, or reinforced enthusiasm for an ongoing project. EA's demonstration of Dragon Age sadly did not. If the content shown was indicative, it seems reasonable to worry about with the forthcoming old-school fantasy RPG. I'm just hoping it was not.

RPS At E3: Returns To Monkey Island

Even a week after the announcement, the news that there's to be more Monkey Island still seems hard to believe. LucasArts, once an adored development house, has become known in recent years for little other than churning out Star Wars themed products of varying quality. Attempts at new licences during president Jim Ward's realm failed (possibly in no small part because they very were attempts…

CrimeCraft Footage, Dev Speak

The other PC-based MMOFPS (or is it a PWNS?) at E3 was CrimeCraft. It's operating along rather similar lines to APB: a gang-based theme, with guns, hip hop stylings, and ongoing RPG elements. Sadly there's no open world combat, because the game is driven by story-led PvP and PvE in instanced missions. Despite being "massive" and being powered by the Unreal 3 engine, the footage…

RPS At E3: APB – The Most Important Game At E3

Of everything I saw at E3, APB stood out as the project with the greatest concentration of inspiration. Ignore the surprisingly crappy images that have been released so far - this one deserves your attention. During the presentation a colleague sat next to me leant in and said, "Bloody hell." A minute or so later I replied, "This is the first original idea I've seen…

Metal Gear Solid 5 On PC. Woo?

There isn't much love for most of the MGS series in Castle Shotgun, but of course it has its fans and they're totally entitled to that, regardless of the fact that we'll eventually round them up and drown them all in the river. The news that the upcoming new'un, MGS: Rising - which apparently stars some half-robot ladyboy or something - is departing its traditional…

RPS At E3: Mass Effect 2

Spoilers are a weird thing when it comes to sequels. Especially sequels which promote themselves by throwing out mysteries and sly hints about the deaths of major characters. BioWare told us some answers today regarding the very beginning of Mass Effect 2. The very beginning. I'm going to share them, okay, but don't say I didn't warn you.

Mount & Blade: Warband: Multiplayer – Multiplayier!

Emerging from a cloud of dust of E3 is the sound of horse-feet. Hooves. That's the word, hooves. Sorry - it's early. As you'll hopefully be aware, RPS-fave Mount & Blade is getting an expansion. In terms of features they revealed at E3, we're talking about fancier graphics with redone models and - er - graphic effects I can't be bothered listing and now 64…

E3 09 Diary: Day Two

I'm by far not the first to make this point, but the most extraordinary thing about being at E3 is you've absolutely no idea what's going on at E3. If you want to know every announcement, every new game, every surprise revelation, then stay at home and refresh your favourite rolling news site. The last place you want to be is in the convention. The…

RPS At E3: Just Cause 2

There have been two games that have made me laugh out loud at their sheer audacity during this E3, and one of them is Just Cause 2. You may remember that the original game from Avalanche in 2006, as famous for its infinite parachutes as it was for having an entire island to explore as you wished. There were some who found the unrealistic nature…

RPS At E3: Borderlands

We've finally seen Borderlands running. And how. The new graphical overhaul has received a lot of attention, but so far only been seen in screenshots (and the very brief glimpses in this trailer). It's good news to report that it looks even more splendid when it's moving. The concept-art-as-graphics design has completely won us over. But what about the game itself?

E3 09: The Agency Developer Walkthrough

We've not been paying much attention to Sony Online Entertainment's new MMO, spy-shooter The Agency, but since 2009 is clearly Year Of The Spy, we thought we'd best post up some of the E3 09 insight. In this case it's a GameTrailer's-acquired developer walkthrough, posted below. The game definitely has a whiff of City Of Heroes to it, in that the public areas are "City…

The Heroes And Villains Of Majesty 2

It's not all impossi-budget shooters being shown to the drooling crowds at E3 here on RPS this week. For a change of pace, we've rounded up Steve Breslin and Alexey Kozyrev, editor and producer respectively on upcoming RTS/management/RPG sequel Majesty 2: The Fantasy Management Sim. They'd very much like to give you sterling people an exclusive look at the men, women, beasts and demonic rocky…

RPS At E3: Brink Revealed

After a mysterious announcement of Brink last week, we tracked down Splash Damage at E3 to see the game running. With over a billion matches played over six years in Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory, London-based developers Splash Damage feel pretty cocksure of their multiplayer prowess. What makes Brink so interesting is that rather than simply repeating a tried and tested formula, once again they're attempting something…
